Strange hunch, Company D seems to have an intrinsic design suggestive of a series either of exclamation points (Yahoo!) or lowercase I's (intel).

Probably nothing...

I noticed those too. They seem like "i's" to me.

by Sonja Thompson Staff In reply to My guesses

I like how you think! Those are the exact same guesses I came up with... ok, they weren't blind guesses. My inquiring mind had to know, so I did a little research. A couple were uncertain, so I'm very interested to know if this list is indeed 100% accurate.

Wild Goose Chase

by Ground Controll In reply to Can you name the headquar ...

Hate to burst your bubble, but No 9 is a Dell manufacturing site in Austin, TX rather than their headquarters in Roundrock, Tx. Thanks for the wild goose chase... it was fun!
